tonight! ♪ ♪ >> glenn: hello, america. tonight in the next three nights i want you to d.v.r. this program. there is a lot to do and a lot of stuff to learn. we are finding it in a whole bunch of really old dusty books. this is smithsonian report from 1885 we're going to talk about tonight. this is from 1882. history that has been completely lost or erased. why would i spend an hour on a news network to share this with you? if we don't understand our past, we'll never understand our future. there are people who use our past or erase our past for reasons. we have to get to the bottom of it and see if there is any pattern we can find, any pattern at all to help us navigate the waters laying ahead of us. let me start, instead of in history, let me start here with nancy pelosi today. she is now calling for an investigation in to those who stand in opposition of the ground zero mosque. wait a minute. what? she wants to know how this opposition is being funded to make it a political issue. watch. >> there is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. and
wonderful america is. may i ask a question? am i the only man in america who is married to a woman where we'd have these conversations? how is it possible when his wife is saying that this is all hatred against muslims in america? can someone ask a common sense question? have these two chatted recently? has the conversation not popped up in the rauf household? what is he saying over there? wouldn't it be an important thing to sort out before we send this guy around the world as an ambassador to the united states? if this is what his wife is saying about america here in america, what is he saying about america to others around the world? i'm sorry if it sounds paranoid, but there are radicalized muslims who would like to kill everybody in america and destroy the western way of life. so we're a little sensitive on the topic. something doesn't add up here. let me ask you this question. if you were an ambassador, and you were going around talking up america and saying how great it is for you and people like you and your wife went on abc television and said this is straight-up hatred for all mus
different somehow i'm pretty sure. ♪ ♪ >> hello, america. we are from washington, d.c., where this saturday, we will be gathered here at the feet of the lincoln memorial. we are going to basically see in the corner -- oops, in this corner. can you put it back up? this corner is the merit badge. i have been wearing it. i'm all screwed up because i can't -- television is just backwards. the merit badge. there it is in the bottom of your screen. it is george washington's original purple heart, but it was just given for merit, for doing something of honor. we didn't evenbe know about it until 1933 when fdr found three. there were only three in existence. join me for the rest of this story and so much more. renewal of america saturday. at the lincoln memorial. last week, a poll from "time" magazine showed that 24% of americans believe that president obama is a muslim. pew poll found the same result. 18% have the belief that he is a muslim. the numbers in both polls have gone up since obama's election. now that doesn't make sense, because as you learn more and more about the president of the unit
. our selves. le coming to america, to a country who did not understand who we were, what we have done, and what we do, would do in this land of opportunity. it is this older generation that paved the way to make this country our own. from coast to coast we've built our communities, raised our families, fought injustice and stood stronger than whatever tried to bring us down. it is the community spirit that beats in the heart of every filipino and it is in communities where fill in -- filipinos find their strength and celebrate their triumphs. fill i inoes across the country joined the charge for progress, for change, hope, and helped elect america's first black president, bronalt they are the kind of person who generously shares their heard-earned delarkss extends a helping hand, puts together needed goods to send aid back home. it is a success story of business leaders, athletes, artists and others who use their talents to help advance other fill i inoes. it is the flame of democracy rekindled through the burning legacy of the common desire for freedom. this lives on today in the you
of america was the pesky constitution was, let's get crazy, a charter of negative liberties that didn't bring about redistributive change. that would be -- by the way, 61% of americans already understand we have the right, we have a right. you can be a christian, muslim or jew, you have a right. we get that. 64% don't think there is any wisdom behind that decision. so mr. president, next time you want a teachable moment, you are going to comment on it, maybe it should be about this part. and not about this part. oh, by the way, while the president worried about the ground zero mosque, there's something he's not paying attention to. it's called the hindenberg omen. it is going to be a happy, happy monday show. come on along, kids! ♪ ♪ >> glenn: hello, america. you're like just when i thought mond was going to really, really suck. then glenn comes on. yeah, yep, yep, yep. it's going to be good today. while the president was hosting an iftar dinner for ramadan. by the way, my apologies. i have didn't even know ramadan was happening so i didn't get you a president. i'm sorry. but i am, i know
americas , one constitutional, one cultural. explain. >> well, i think what you see happening in this debate is much like what you mentioned in the opening just now. there are people who frame it exclusively through the lens of constitutional rights, where what we have here is the free exercise of religion . muslims have as much a right to exercise their religion as anyone else and that's the only debate that matters, the constitutional debate. and then i think on the other side you have people who instinctively or, you know, intuitively or intellectually conceive of america in cultural as well as constitutional terms. and so, in a sense, in that america , it isn't clear that islam has completely arrived yet. there's a sense of suspicion, uncertainty that you have seen in the past where wreligious grouped like my own church, the catholic church in the 19th century, even with home-grown faiths like the mormons in the same period where groups are sort of asked to prove their american bona fide. and i think the negative reaction to the mosque is this is kind of presumptious by a
the notion of a post-racial america. tim wise reject the idea of a post-racial society and believes the debate this contributing to racial disparagement. a fascinating conversation with author tim wise coming up right now very good >> all i know is his name is james, and he needs extra help with his reading. >> i am james. >> yes. >> with everyone making a difference, and you help us all live better. >> nationwide probably supports tavis smiley. working to improve financial -- proudly supports tavis smiley. working to improve financial literacy and security that comes with it. good >> and from viewers like you. thank you. >> tim wise is a noted author and activist. his latest book is called "colorblind." good to have you on the program. i want to start by reading a paragraph that i think will set us off to a pretty fascinating start to the conversation, but i also think it does justice to what your work is about. let me read from page 20. "by endorsing color blindness, president obama implies that there are no institutional obstacles faced by people of color that could not be weaken
take back america dick morris is here. i'm worried about one thing, peaking early dick. you have been ahead of the curve. we'll go through some of the senate races. it seems like the republicans are hitting on all cylinders. they are going to come out with their agenda items, something like a contract, which i think is going to help. is this too early? >> you ain't seen nothing yet. partisan trend is like a curve ball in baseball. it comes in looking like a fast ball. it only breaks when it is a few feet from the plate. partisan trend only really manifests in the last 7 to 10 days before the election that's when people that don't really follow politics begin to follow it a little bit and decide who they are going to vote for. normally, on year election that helps democrats because it is much more down scale, less educated. in an off year election when those folks are not going to vote any way it is people that are likely republican voters. it is your reagan democrats. you haven't seen the party trend yet. all we are looking at now is the conclusions people have drawn from the obama ad
that they think assimilation is america bending to the muslim outlook, not the other way around. how on earth can people who have such a deeply negative and distressful view of america and her citizens be trusted to promote the american experience at home and abroad? she says if we object to the mosque, we're muslim haters. he says we have blood on our hands. this assimilation issue is also front and center in a new lawsuit by a muslim woman against disney land accusing the company of discrimination for telling her she couldn't work as a hostess if she chose to wear a head scarf. now, disney requires cast members to sign a detailed agreement to abide by their strict conduct, hair, and dress rules but the plaintiff doesn't consider herself bound by this agreement now. and disney by the way tried to accommodate offering her the opportunity to work behind the scenes to no avail. we have more on this case later in the program but on this theory, the same woman should be able to sign on to waitress at hooters and then demand the right to cover up and still serve the patrons. this is the opposite of as
, is america islamaphobic? we know that it is their right to build a community center and mosque near ground zero. my question for you is, is it the wise thing to do? >> obviously this is not about freedom of religion in america. typically these kinds of decisions are made by local officials. what's been different about this one is you have the president of the united states weighing in on this issue on each side of the issue within 24 hours, which helped stimulate a great national debate and not about freedom of religion, but about the appropriateness of the location. >> what's your view about whether it should be built? >> ultimately that's going to be decided by the people of new york, but i think because of the nature of the attack on 9/11, a lot of people not just in new york but around the country have strong views about this. i hope the people of new york who make the decision take into account public opinion not only locally will you around the country in making a final decision about the location of this facility. >> that would suggest you think it should be moved because public opi
